Brütting. A real running shoe.
The Brütting sports shoe has been made since the end of the 60s and enjoys cult status among connoisseurs and competitive athletes. It was developed in close co-operation between the Nuremberg shoemaker Eugen Brütting and several coaches and athletes and is today still “handmade in Germany”.
Made of leather – crafted on a last.
The shoes are constructed on a crescent-shaped last. A soft border lining surrounds the heel and the sole‘s edge and back are strengthened with rubber. The sole structure is produced in keeping with a conservative, traditional shoemaking method, the three-layer structure, with a hard-wearing rubber running sole, wedge and front-to-back middle sole made of cellular rubber, and the chrome-tanned leather insole provide a medium-hard step.
I wore these shoes first when they were originally produced in the early 1970s. They were wonderful. Long-lasting, comfortable, and safe. I was on staff at Runner's World, which sold them by mail order. With our staff discount, they cost $25. (!) I've never found better shoes.
I have been wearing these shoes most days for over a year. What makes them so wonderful is a perfect combination of firmness & comfort. They are not remotely squishy like so many trainers & have no synthetic, sweaty materials. They feel supportive & not too flat. I wish they were available in a more practical colour because they have become pretty grubby looking. The crepe edging gets dirty straight away. I am very fussy about shoes & I absolutely love these. The comfort quotient is so high that I forgive them their less than perfect beauty. Having found such great shoes I am now seriously considering stocking up on them for the next few years.
